for healthcare.gov. today the obama administration is claiming success in getting the website to work smoothly for the vast majority of users. a passing grade for its own self-set december 1st ted line. the latest progress report says the site is working more than 90% of the time, able to handle at least 800,000 users a day. in fact, the white house says 375,000 people visited the site before noon today. and while the official numbers aren't in yet, nbc news confirms that about 100,000 people were able to select plans on the federal exchange in november. up some 27,000 -- up from some 27,000 in october. but the white house says it still has more work to do. >> the president believes that the site has been significantly improved. but the work is not done. and it will continue. >> and right now, that rehabilitation effort extends well beyond the website to the president's political support. and his wider second term agenda. a broad-based approach evidenced by events over the weekend. on friday, the president and first lady met with activists engaged in a hunger strike on the national mall in pur

. >> the argument they are making with the creepy uncle sam showed they still do it. it's by the obama administration to make you get something you don't need and you probably don't want. it's a crazy thing. the president is going after young people in particular. one because you need them in the pool. you need the premiums and helping people in the pools to help pay for all the older people who are much more expensive. this doesn't work if everyone is not in the pool. especially if young people aren't. >> that's the argument. they want the law to mail and they would start bankrupting insurance companies because they break the model. >> the insurance companies may be bankrupt even further. this is deeply cynical. the website works and let's go back to the argument. we are making in the first place. guess what happened if you don't get the young people. not like the exchanges go away. they become a lot more expensive. they won't wind up killing them, they will wound them and guess who will be stuck with the tab. the taxpayer. with the republicans and conservatives are doing is expanding

administration wants to take us on. >> the level of naivete that barack obama has shown regarding iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability begs my ability to articulate. >> those comments are down right dovish compared to the opinion of one other member of their party. >> i think if you have to hit iran, you don't put boots on the ground, you do it with tactical nuclear devices and set them back a decade or two or three. >> right. because the way to stop one country from going nuclear is to nuke them. coming up is the power fading for one political money machine behind stand your ground laws? but first, indeed, it's always 5:00 somewhere. so be sure to tip your bartender. >> if you're a bartender, have a happy hour. and also probably get health insurance, because a lot of bartenders don't have it. ♪ >>> ordinary folks can't write massive campaign checks or higher, high-priced lobbyists and lawyers to secure policies that tilt the playing field in their favor at everyone else's expense. and so people get the bad taste that the system is rigged. >> the role of money and interest groups in

and healthcare.gov headaches, president obama is renewing the push for his signature health care law. and this white house knows, they have no time to waste. to promote the law and boost enrollment, the administration will hold an event every single day from now until december 23rd, the deadline to enroll and get insurance for the new year. and it all started this afternoon, with the president himself, who said we are not going back. >> and that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have, is let's go back to the status quo, because they sure haven't presented an alternative. you've got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> no, we're not going to repeal the law. and, in fact, the real ballots may have just begun. >> if i've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, that's what i'll do. what's important for everybody to remember is, not only that the law has already helped millions of people, but that there are millions more who stand to be helped. and we've got to make sure they know tha
